Apple Court celebrates a year with Hallmark

Posted on May 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

A Warrington nursing home has celebrated its first year since being acquired by Hallmark Healthcare. Hallmark, which owns 11 care homes throughout the UK, acquired Apple Court nursing home in June last year and since then has spent thousands of pounds in refurbishing the home and in staff training. Apple Court¹s manager Ian Smallwood said the purpose-built nursing home had first opened in 1997. “When Hallmark Healthcare purchased it last year, they decided to completely redecorate the home, fit new carpets, and generally create a more comfortable and more attractive place for residents to live and for staff to work,” Mr Smallwood said. “In addition, Hallmark has introduced staff training programmes which go beyond legal requirements and give all staff an opportunity to develop and reach their potential. We have more than 60 residents here and the result is that they have an even better home to live in, where they are cared for by well-qualified, highly motivated staff.”
